For now, I need to get about 30-40 cigars out of my current humidor and into a tuppidor. The only storage I currently have would keep the cigars vertical or on end, rather than lying down. Will this hurt the cigars at all? If this isn't a problem, I would guess it would be better to store them on the uncut side correct? I can always go out and buy something that is a little bigger for my temporary storage until I buy a new humi but I want to make sure I wont do any damage.
I've been reading and researching a bit so I can make a well informed decision on a new desktop humidor. I am still in the process of researching on here and other resources. I have used the search feature and thumbed through a number of threads and followed links in those threads. I know the recommendation is to get a coolidor which I definitely plan on doing but I don't think I am at that point yet. I want to find some more sophisticated cigars that I enjoy and I can buy in bulk before I make that step. I do plan on trying a newbie trade soon so I'm sure a coolidor is not far off. At the same time, I keep reading that I should spend my money on good cigars and not a humidor so now I am lost...lol
With that said, I want to see what I should be looking or asking for in my next humidor. My current humidor has a glass top and an analog hygro (which remains in there to keep the hole covered but I now have a digital hygro). I have to say, I like the glass top for the main reason that I can see my RH without having to open the top. I have read both sides about glass tops and understand it's just another way to let humidity escape. I am semi-perplexed with which way to go in this regard.
What should I be looking for in my new desktop humidor? I'm looking for a 100 count. Some things that I've found so far that my next purchase should have:
- Sureseal technology
- No glass top (as said above, I'm not sure I like this idea but if it will keep my cigars protected, than I'll sacrifice)
- Kiln dried Spanish cedar obviously
What else should I be looking for?
I have found two options from links in other posts and some research: http://www.cheaphumi..._HUM-100LG.html or http://www.cheaphumi...HUM-300GR.html? Although this is a 300 count, it currently lists at $109.
So after re-reading all of this, I'm friggin lost...lol I would like something nice to pluck my cigars from regularly instead of a coolidor but after cost is involved, it seems silly not to go with a coolidor. I have beads (I'd likely need more for a cooler), digital hygro and all I need is some good cigars to smoke! I just don't know what to do at this point. Show me the way...
